"Catsma, as opposed to dogma?"--Good one,I like that-- thanks for making me smile.
To address the substance of your post: When you called the Flotilla attempt to break the seige, "stupid" in your original post, I didn't think you'd also describe it as courageous, as the two terms are not ordinarily used in conjunction with whatever the action might be-- hence I made the comment that I think it's courageous.
As for what our reactions should be if the Flotilla fails to reach Gaza: Your reaction will be, if I read you right, "you knew the risks, deal with it." My reaction will be, "Bless y'all, and thank you for your efforts in taking on such a dangerous, righteous endeavor." I think they are all well aware that they will have to deal with the consequences, which could be deadly, but are committed to taking the action anyway, because they see it as something they can do which just might be a catalyst for change.
